      Union officials, civic leaders call for “care, not chaos” in effort to save the Affordable Care Act

      An early top priority of the month-old Trump administration is replacing Obamacare. That continues to evoke concern among many who say despite its problems, the Affordable Care Act is working.

      Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the national “right to work” bill: Right to work is a lie dressed up in a feel-good slogan. It doesn’t give workers freedom—instead, it weakens our right to join together and bargain for better wages and working conditions. Its end goal is to destroy unions. Numbers don’t lie. Workers in states with right to work laws have wages that are 12% lower. That’s because unions raise wages for all workers, not just our members.

      Stuart Appelbaum, the head of the most powerful retail workers union in America, swears he is optimistic. Why? Appelbaum has been president of the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union (RWDSU) for nearly 20 years. He previously worked as a lawyer for the Democratic National Committee, and is still a DNC member. Under his leadership, the union has had notable victories in the generally hostile retail world, representing workers at H&M, Zara, Duane Reade, Macy’s, and Bloomingdale’s, as well as significant numbers of car wash workers, southern poultry workers, and factory workers across America. Appelbaum spoke to us last week about the future of unions in the Donald Trump era.
